The Benefits You’ll Experience When You Upgrade Your Air Conditioner
If you’ve wondered if it’s time to upgrade your cooling system, you’re not alone! It can be difficult to discern what symptoms indicate the need for air conditioner replacement, and that’s why the Loren’s Heating and Air team will assist you every step of the way and will ensure you understand every part of the AC replacement process. We want you to have all of the information necessary for you to weigh the pros and cons of continuing with maintenance and repair services for your current system compared to investing in a new cooling system and all of the benefits that offers. One of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a new cooling system is energy efficiency, as this will affect your monthly bills and can dramatically lower them. When buying a new air conditioner, consider:
Air Conditioner Efficiency Ratings
SEER and EER are two ratings you need to pay attention to. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and EER stands for Energy Efficiency Rating. In 2006, the Federal Government made it mandatory for the minimum SEER rating for all central air conditioning systems to be 13. An air conditioning system’s performance is measured using Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The higher end of SEER ratings for AC units is considered to be up to 23. As with most things in life, the better the system (the higher the SEER), the more expensive the system will be, but you will quickly make up for your investment with the monthly savings you experience due to higher energy efficiency. SEER ratings between 14 and 18 describe cooling systems with moderate to good efficiency. EER provides a description of the cooling capacity of the air conditioning system. Cooling systems with high EER ratings have higher cooling capacities than those with low EER ratings.
R-22 is an older type of refrigerant, and due to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) beginning a Phase Out program banning all ozone-depleting substances in the U.S., it will soon be unavailable and is no longer used in air conditioning systems being manufactured. If you have an older air conditioner that requires this type of refrigerant, your system is still usable, but only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your system. R410-A is the new standard and current requirement for refrigerant for all new systems. This type of refrigerant is not harmful to the environmental, and therefore is preferred. There will come a time when older systems requiring R-22 are obsolete and have to be replaced with newer systems that use R410-A, or have to be modified to use R410-A instead of R-22. This is only one aspect to consider when weighing the pros and cons of upgrading your system. If your existing cooling unit has been in use for 10-15 years, it is reaching the end of its lifespan and now is a great time to look into having it replaced to increase energy efficiency and to ensure you’re operating a safe system. Our team is standing by to help you find the ideal cooling system for your needs!

Why should I get a new HVAC system?It can often be difficult for home and business owners to tell if it’s time to upgrade their heating and cooling system. Loren's Heating & Air can assist you in this process. We want you to understand the pros and cons of continuing to repair and maintain your current system versus upgrading and making the investment in a new system. Some of the most important things to consider are increased energy efficiency, updated components, rebates and incentives, better home comfort and indoor air quality, and more effective heating and cooling.
Why are air conditioner efficiency ratings important?In 2006, the Federal Government made it mandatory for all central air conditioning systems to have a minimum SEER of 13. SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, is a measure of the cooling system’s performance. On the highest end of performance, cooling units are rated as high 23 SEER. As with anything, the better performance, the higher the cost. For a system with moderate to good efficiency, you should look for a model with a SEER rating of between 14 and 18. The EER, or the Energy Efficiency Rating, provides an indication of the cooling capacity of the system that you’ve had installed. The higher the EER number, the better the system’s cooling capacity.
What are the different types of air conditioner refrigerant?If you have an air conditioning system that requires the old type of refrigerant, R-22, your system is still usable but only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your air conditioner. R410-A is now the required standard for newer systems and has less environmental impact relative to the older refrigerant. Eventually, you will need to replace your air conditioner with one that uses R410-A, or have it modified so that it can use R410-A. The type of refrigerant your AC uses is only one of many reasons to consider upgrading, and if your existing unit is outdated, now might be a good time to look into having it replaced to boost energy efficiency, lessen environmental impact, and make sure you are operating a safe system. Not only will an upgraded cooling system make it easier to have your unit serviced, but it’ll also save you money on your annual cooling costs. Loren's Heating & Air in Salem, OR, offers the highest quality air conditioner replacement services.
How is furnace efficiency measured?Furnace energy efficiency is calculated with the AFUE, or the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The AFUE is a rating that compares how much heat a furnace will produce relative to the amount of energy necessary to produce the heat. If a furnace is rated at 85 percent AFUE, it means 15 percent of the energy used is lost and 85 percent actually becomes heat for your home or business.
What is indoor air quality and why is it important?Indoor air quality, or IAQ, is a measurement of the amount of airborne particles and pollutants inside your home or building. Because properties are being constructed to be more energy efficient, they are also becoming more airtight, meaning that fresh air often does not have a way to enter and circulate. This is one of the reasons why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, leading to a host of allergy and respiratory issues. Fortunately, IAQ products such as air filters, air purifiers, and humidifiers work in conjunction with your central AC and heating unit to decrease the prevalence of dust, dander, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other potentially harmful particles in your indoor air. Our team can work with you to find the right solution to fit your needs.
